Detective Noel McGuire was shot and killed while working a vice detail.

He had stopped a suspicious vehicle and questioned the suspects. As he returned to his cruiser one of the suspects shot him in the back. He was able to call for help on his radio. Unbeknownst to him, the suspects had just committed an armed robbery in a neighboring county. Both suspects were arrested a few hours later in Oklahoma by state police officers.

The 15-year-old shooter and his 16-year-old accomplice were convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Detective McGuire had served with the Little Rock Police Department for five years. He survived by his parents.

Don, I think of you often my friend. I left law enforcement for a while, about six months after you were taken. I did another 20 plus years on the job after that night and got married for the last time. Not to one of the ladies you met, but her stepfather had been my Lt. at Jacksonville PD. I lost her this year after 36 years. The really loud voice at the Pearly Gates June 2nd, 2016 would have been her. Hope you keep an eye on her until I get up there.
Thanks Partner.
